Get a transplant then, easy fix or wait it out with microneedling/minoxidil.

It's definitely something to consider but transplants are expensive, i would probably need between 1200 and 1500 grafts, thats if they would even do it since my crown is diffused except for one part. Im thinking about taking 20mg minoxidil, 10 in the morning 10 at night, see if that helps.

I barely even flake. And I press, man... I really do.
Weird indeed.

Hmm.. interesting. I'd say both my temples consistently flake afterwards for sure. I go a fair bit past my (current) hairline since they've receded so much. I've just been paying attention though now to the rest of the scalp - and it seems like it is mostly mostly/primarily the right side.

I don't know about your financial situation but if you go to one of the best (imo) asmed, I think it's still 2.5 euro/graft. So if you only need 1500, that's not such a big amount now.

You ought to wait for a year before doing anything more drastic. You might want to even decrease your intake of minoxidil because 10 mg is potentially damaging. I had a racing heart with 5 mg/day.

0.5mg dutasteride daily
10mg oral minoxidil at night
5% topical minoxidil at night with light dermarolling
Needling every 7 days at 2.5mm
various supplements

I just added the topical minoxidil last month or thereabouts hoping it would give a boost of regrowth on my crown. The oral minoxidil seems to have helped diffuse thinning on the top of my head a little but done nothing for my crown.

im slowly regrowing all my hair and its been only 3months of microneedling every 2-4 weeks.

microneedling+scalp massages without anything else is working for me because i catched my hairloss early,

My crown is filling in at the slowest rate but all the front of my head and my hairline is most likely going to be completely recovered at some point. no shed, only thicker hairs and extremely small new hairs sroupting and becoming thicker and thicker from the root with time.

I'm getting gains and density in the reverse pattern i lost my hair, ( I lost my crown first )

. ( early diffuse thinner / 1 year of hairloss, father and brother completely bald ) . I will post all my pictures in july for the 6 month timeline.

I recommend adding minoxidil if the person if too bald or want faster results.

Flaking/Peeling question for you guys... do you find you flake consistently across your entire scalp? Or does it tend to be in particular areas?

Day 4 after my last session and the skin is flaking now... though primarily on my right side (which is the more receded side too, both temple & crown).

I find that weird ... as I think I do a very consistent job in pressure/coverage/intensity across the scalp now after ~7 sessions or so... you'd figure it'd be flaking/peeling all over?
I echo that. I flake the most on my baldest areas.

Do you have any before images showing your baldest areas and then what it looks like now?

@overpourgoodfortune & @WMQ it must be because of inflammation.

A lot of people lose their hair because of inflammation, and flaking is a sign of inflammation. A lot of people with mbp also suffer from seborrheic dermatitis

It took me about 4 months on minoxidil to start getting crown results. I hope that there is more to come.
I'm not slick bald on the crown, just thin. Definitely a difference though

Got a good before and after pic to share?

I’m around the four month mark myself and not using minoxidil.

If I am not seeing any results in a couple of weeks I will restart my count and begin using minoxidil. And won’t expect and growth until 4 months :)

Just a quick small update. I can clearly see longer vellus in the middle of the temples (specially left) i.e. where there hasn't been hair for 8+ years. Again nothing cosmetically interesting (it's a slick bald area otherwise) but never had such response before IIRC. Just hope they won't stay vellus forever which wouldn't be rare...

Are there any suggestions to reduce inflammation/peeling by any chance?

While flaking can be a result of SebDerm as @zeerax pointed out - this flaking is not. This is a layer of skin having been damaged from the microneedling and is peeling off. Far different from the oily, crusty scales/flakes formed by SebDerm.

It is interesting that some don't flake after a needling session, or very little. Then others flake, but only from certain parts of the scalp.
